2010 Kapcsándy "Roberta's Reserve - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1143257 98 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, blueberry, minerals and licorice. Wonderfully intense but youthfully imploded on the palate, offering electric flavors of black fruits, cocoa powder, bitter chocolate and minerals. Utterly seamless considering that it's so backward today. Finishes with noble tannins, great class and energy and endless lingering perfume. This gained steadily in complexity during the 45 minutes or so I was able to follow it, but its steely structure suggests it will evolve gracefully for two or three decades. It's perhaps the single greatest merlot-based wine I have ever tasted from California. 98+ Points Inner quote mark (6/2013)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Much more luxurious, voluptuous and in-your-face is the 2010 Roberta’s Reserve, which is a typical blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc with 14.5% alcohol. It boasts a saturated ruby/purple color along with lots of Asian plum sauce, white chocolate, kirsch and a subtle smoky note. With superb richness and a full-bodied mouthfeel, despite its tannic framework it can be drunk in several years or cellared for several decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2013)

97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Roberta's Reserve is deep, rich, and powerful. The most backward of the Kapcsandy 2010s today, the Roberta's impresses for its purity, centeredness and poise. The 2010 is nowhere near ready to drink. With time in the glass, some of its explosiveness begins to emerge. Dark plum, mocha, new leather and licorice are some of the many notes that flow through to the vibrant, nuanced finish. A dollop of Cabernet Franc (5%) rounds out the blend. (AG) Inner quote mark (11/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Firm and tightly wound, with a rich and complex core, offering flavors of black currant and dried herbs, plus accents of tomato leaf, olive and tart cherry. Needs time. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2020. (TF, Web-2013) Inner quote mark
